them. they think in the general election 4% of the people care most about this issue, even though 91% of the country disagrees with us, we might not pay a political price for it whereas we know the lobby--the gun lobby will make us pay a price for it. isn't that what is wrong with our structurally with the current democracy. >> of course that's what is wrong with it. weakening that lobby is a very important part of it. but also changing the rules of the senate is a part of it that has to meet that weakening halfway. and when you have these senators who are afraid to vote for something because of the grade they're going to get. max baucus when he said why he didn't vote for it, one word, montana. the nra and the crazy support of max baucus. i'm not going to say it's crazy to support max baucus because they got what they wanted but they're so supportive with money you understand why the senators vote in that way. you have to change the structure of the filibuster. noah is right with four democratic senators they only would have gotten to 59 but they shouldn't have to get past 59. they

this is the first round of a fight. i think the next obvious round is the 2014 election. and chuck will back me up on this. the problem there is there are 14 republicans up in 2014, andrea, one of them, susan collins, sits in the state that president obama won in 2012. and susan collins voted for cloture, that is to begin the debate and she voted for the manchin-toomey amendment. so of the issues are from mark pryor, mark begich. these are people that are democrats. i can't imagine president obama going after his own to prove his point on background checks organs. i could be wrong. >> heidi heitkamp is not up. >> not until 2018. >> i've heard this from other democratic strategist who is are working on house and senate races. the president actually was articulating the message that democrats are trying to come up with. sort of justifying how they, which is the idea of trying to isolate the republicans and say hey, the republicans in congress are not on your side. so you heard the president say, 90% of democrats were with the 90%, 90% of republicans were not so trying to paint republicans as out of
are disappointed and if they don't act this time, you will remember come election time. and i see this as just round one. >> joining us now, joy reid, managing editor for the grio.com. joy, thanks for joining any. >> thank withdryou. >> harry reid pulled the bill from consideration. news accounts are casting this as a loss for president obama, making it personal. i don't think the president was about making this personal. >> yeah, i mean, you can see from his reaction, right, when he did that news conference, after the bill went down, that he's angry. he is personally angry about this. you can also see that it's because the newtown shooting, the massacre at sandy hook, affected him in a way that was so deeply personal as a dad. you can see he's reacting just as a father. he is livid. if you leave the reports, he's particularly angry about those democrats who jumped ship on him, the four democrats who vote against the bill. personalizing it and claiming this is a loss for obama is a way of reframing this debate as your typical barack obama puts himself above the interests of whatever. it's all
to do. >> well, to me the stock market is the voting machine and the voting machine says you've been re-elected. that's indra nooyi, chairman and ceo of pepsico. thank you so much. great to meet you on "mad money." thank you. revolutionizing an industry can be a tough act to follow, but at xerox we've embraced a new role. working behind scenes for over 11 million employees. reducing document costs by up to 30%... and processing $421 billion dollars in accounts payables each year. helping thousands of companies simplify how work gets done. how's that for an encore? with xerox, you're ready for real business. how's that for an encore? but i wondered what a customer thought? describe the first time you met. you brought the flex in... as soon as i met fiona and i was describing the problem we were having with our rear brakes, she immediately triaged the situation, knew exactly what was wrong with it, the car was diagnosed properly, it was fixed correctly i have confidence knowing that if i take to ford it's going to be done correctly with the right parts and the right people. get a free brake inspe
it or were they afraid of losing re-election? >> you know, i think that there is something in between and that is representing the people of your state. unfortunately in many, many states, the more rural states, some of the gun organizations have made people afraid of any gun legislation as they claim each one will lead to the taking away of your gun. it so happens the background checks would not affect law-abiding gun owners. i believe in the second amendment. i think there is a right to bear arms and i don't think liberals are right when they say it only applies to malicious, and i was saying that before the heller amendment. on the other hand, this bill only affects people who are felons, who are adjudicated mentally ill, who are spousal abusers. if you're a law-abiding gun owner this isn't going to interfere with your rights but some of these gun organizations, the nra in particular, they can't win on the merits of the arguments so they scare people and that's what they've done here. having said that, if you represent one of these rural states they think if you vouch for this it i

to unity rally three days after the election. then we didn't bicker and it wasn't the establishment against the upstart. everybody showed up, all all the republican congressman and my opponent showed up in both of my opponent showed up and it was a good thing that it was a smart thing on his point. [inaudible] >> think he actually didn't know at that point. point. the poll said really shifted. this was a month or two before. we had actually done pretty well in the polls. some thought i wouldn't sign a pledge but i did. i wanted to be no question that i was supporting the republican nominee. i said i was going to support the nominee once my dad knowledged his nomination was over. >> senator i want to salute you to mentioning mcconnell and thoreau in the same sentence. i wanted to ask you what president of the other party do you most admire and why? >> probably grover cleveland. oh okay. >> we have lots of rules here. >> i have to ask her his -- answer his question? in my lifetime a democrat i guess kennedy was president when i was six months old. he was shot in 63 in the summer or the fall?
reelection. my question is you should not be worried about the election. this is too fundamental to go against not only democracy, but denying a vote on the floor of the u.s. senate literally has no justification. >> stephanie: yeah. yeah. literally. the president's press secretary yesterday, jay carney. >> the newtown families are here because their children were murdered. they are asking for the senate to do something that is common sense. >> stephanie: i can't imagine a sadder day for american. the six year olds were blown away at point-blank range, and the united states congress woman who was shot in the face and we can't even get enough democrats to vote for this? where are we politically in america and where do we go from here? >> you may hear from my tone that i'm a little bit of horse. this is a different reaction than i usually have. i write a column purple nation where i try to look at things both ways. i am somewhat astonished but i see no nuance on the question to democrats how could you not allow a vote on this? and i want those names, and they may be f

in the late 80s and early 90s when gun control activists held the advantage. ever since the 1994 elections when democrats pushed to approve an assault weapon's ban and that cost them a number of seats, they've shied away from gun control. this is the first time the obama administration got into this legislative fight and maybe underestimated how difficult it would be to get congress to change. even in a body that is controlled by the democrats. there is a working majority in favor of gun control. >> do you think -- i heard the president specifically call for a more organized efrl on the other side of the issue. do you think that might be happening as well a little bit more? >> sure. you might see ofa, the group that wants to support the president. they might get more involved and democratic law makers want to do more. gun right supporters have a pretty big foothold inside the democratic party especially in the senate. senators in california, senators are a little different than have much more rural areas and push on the gun control issue. you look at the senators from alaska and montana an
